Hello.
I renew my query:
What leads Celeste Headlee to describe the next boat attempting to get life-sustaining supplies to the people of Gaza "Pro-Palestinian" ?
If you wanted to report impartially, you could simply omit that adjective.
If you wanted to be thorough you could say some regard the people in this flotilla and the Rachel Corrie as "Pro-Palestinian" but they describe themselves as "Humanitarian."
When you mindlessly use buzz words you are not being a journalist but rather adding to the noise which listeners and consumers of misinformation have to parse before getting at the facts.
Truth is the first, and perpetual, casualty of war.
Shame on you.
